Obama says he told Michelle “Listen, baby, you are gorgeous. You know I understand completely why you are a fashion icon”

During a appearance at the Very Smart Brothas Book Club, former President Obama discussed his wife Michelle’s inauguration style that went viral on social media.

Obama said “I don’t know what it is about y’all with Michelle and her belts.”

“I asked Michelle about it at dinner the other night,” he added  “I said, ‘Listen, baby, you are gorgeous. You know I understand completely why you are a fashion icon.’ But I said, ‘Was your hair different? Cause it didn’t look that different.'”
